Looks like PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale developer SuperBot Entertainment isn't doing the best right now, as the studio has been hit by an unspecified number of layoffs. The unfortunate news came from Insomniac developer Mike Birkhead, who posted a mention on Twitter.
"Layoffs at Superbot. When it rains, it pours," his post read.
Later, Sony confirmed that SuperBot had indeed suffered some losses, though the words used by the publisher were significantly more "PR," which is understandable. In an official statement regarding the news, SCEA remarked:
“SCEA can confirm that SuperBot Entertainment did make a reduction in their workforce today. The studio and SCEA remain committed to supportingpost launch, including developing the title’s forthcoming DLC releases in the coming months. The first character pack (including Kat from Gravity Rush and Emmett Graves from Starhawk) will be available for download on February 12 and will be free for the first two weeks. We’ll be sharing news of additional upcoming content soon.”
No details were given, regarding reasons behind the layoffs or the personnel let go. At any rate, we never like hearing about developers losing their jobs, and our best wishes extend to the staff at SuperBot.
